    Re: Mandolin case comparison (for A-models)

    It has raised pads at the mandolin’s three o’clock and nine o’clock. These pads are on the bottom and on the lid. There is also a pad on the lid above the neck block.

    Re: Mandolin case comparison (for A-models)

    I do mean a handle at the headstock end. I like that I can hold on to the instrument without taking up much space beyond my body. I'm less likely to bonk the case into something.

    Collings MT with tone-gard case?

    Good evening everyone.
    I have a Collings MT with a Tone-Gard. The Collings TKL case isn't deep enough and puts more pressure than I'm comfortable with on the bridge. I have Calton case that works...

    Re: Can you use a Tone-Gard with an armrest?

    I have both on my Collings MT (McClung OTP). The fit is fine in a Bobelock arrow and a Calton.

    Re: Blueridge BR40T or Ibanez AVT1?

    It feels more like a lightweight tenor banjo than a guitar, if that makes sense? I have a long torso (6'6"), so it's best played with a strap for me.

    I have mine tuned GDAE using the GDA strings...

    Re: Blueridge BR40T or Ibanez AVT1?

    I have the Ibanez. I like it. It feels a bit overbuilt maybe? But it's not so much a fair comparison, with the Ibanez coming in about half the cost. It is also a different body style. I picked the...

    Re: Dunlop Primetone picks

    Iíve been A/B-ing a bunch of picks recently. And as much as I used to like Primetone picks, they have a clicky/plinky sound on the strings that I donít think I noticed until I started using a...

  12. Re: Suggestions requested for this array of desired attributes

    If you're not 100% on the black finish, an American Breedlove or a Rigel could fit your specs. The Breedloves all have wide nuts (to my recollection) and some Rigel's do. This Rigel (NFI, just a...

  15. Re: Does this guitar speed picking technique work for mando?

    I would also add that Irish trad doesn't really follow time signatures perfectly. Meaning that a jig isn't 6/8 with six equally spaced 8th notes with the first and fourth accented. When ITM gets...

  23. Re: Mandolin Tasting: Gibsons, Buckeye, Duff, Northfiled

    When I picked #6, I hoped it was the Northfield, because it’s only slightly north of my tax bracket. A ‘28 Fern…maybe I’ll have a productive consulting gig when I retire from teaching middle school.

    After a couple times through, I think #6 does it for me. But, I don’t know if it’s what I would pick if I was a bluegrass player. However, #6 seemed well balanced and had a bit of growl that I love...
